F1 22 is fast approaching, and it's looking typically slick in this latest trailer. Codemasters has been producing top notch Formula One sim racers for many years now, and the latest iteration sees some big changes. In part thanks to major adjustments in the real-world sport, this year's game will be quite a departure from the last.
New cars with new physics are the most obvious change, but adjustments to track layouts and even more flexibility on race weekend features mean it isn't just the vehicle models. Adaptive AI is being introduced as well to help new players by adjusting the difficulty on the fly. You can now choose to control moments like pit stops and safety car, or let the game handle that for you with a broadcast-style transition.
F1 Life is the major new attraction, though, aiming to give players more customisation with their very own hub space. You can customise your driver and their outfit of course, but you'll also unlock new accessories, furniture, and even supercars with which to furnish your corner. Those cars can be taken to the track as well in Pirelli Hot Lap events.
It's all looking pretty good, although we imagine some fans might be sad about the lack of a story mode this year. Still, are you planning to get behind the wheel on 1st July? Tell us in the comments section below.
